Default Miss America

I thought I'd share with you my wonderful new toy.It is a top flite 1/5 mustang done in Miss America paint with a ZDZ80.Built by my friend Berk,and painted by another friend,Dan Davidson.It has turned out to be the nicest plane I've owned,in 34 years of doing this,including all my turbine jets.We maidened it yesterday,and she's running in the 100-120 mph range with a 24x12 break in prop.I'm hoping for 150,when the motor comes loose,and I switch to a 20x18.Thanks Dan and Berk!!

Congrats Erik
What did you do to beef up the nose for the 80cc engine? I have been wanting to put a Zenoah GT-80 on my ARC. Did you beef up the wing too? I have heard you can get 190MPH out of them with an 80 on Alky.

Sweeeet! Beautiful airplane!

Been a while since I've been on this forum. You've just motivated me to finish my Jett 90 FIRE powered Patriot 40!

Take care,

Gino

Rich,

Zinger makes it in a custom laminated form.Check out their website.

TeamAmerica,

My buddy Alan D'Alena did the initial construction.I know he beefed up the firewall.He also reinforced the wings with carbon fiber,and the whole airplane is glassed.Not sure how he did the firewall.Maybe he'll chime in,or you can PM him here.He is 3DHelinut.
